I shoot Sony, the only camera maker with SLT and one of the few with EVF. Then there is Pentax, one of the few SLR's with in body stabilization. On the smaller side you have Fuji, probably the best mirror less camera out there. Olympus and Panasonic are pushing the boundaries of what can be done with a small sensor.

Canon and Nikon are just boring compared to Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, and Fuji. I don't understand why Canon and Nikon dominate with their lack of innovation.

Better AF, more lenses (especially legacy), more third party support, more support for pros, more confidence that they will not abandon your mount and the investment in it for the next thing.  Also, EVF and phase detect AF are not yet ready for prime time, at least not as implemented by Sony -- hell, Sony is not ready for prime time yet.  BTW, I own an A850 and I'm looking forward to going back to Nikon when my finances allow it.
